The house next door to Sameer’s had been empty for as long as he could remember. The family had gone away when the war began. But now they were back, and he was ready to have fun with his new playmate. Together they could climb the big olive tree that overlooked both their gardens, and eat the delicious olives it produced. The only problem was that Muna, the little girl next door, didn’t want to play and she didn’t want to share the olives. She said they belonged to her family alone—that is, until one fateful night when lightning struck the tree. Poignantly told by award-winning author Elsa Marston and with beautiful paintings from award-winning illustrator Claire Ewart, The Olive Tree follows two children as they learn to share and work together by looking past their differences. It shows young readers that compassion and understanding lie at the heart of all friendships.

Peter Sellers was one of the biggest stars of the 1960s and '70s, first known for such radio characters as Bluebottle in the popular series The Goon Show before achieving global fame as Chief Inspector Clouseau in the Pink Panther series. What is lesser known, however, is that he got his start during a three-year stint in the Royal Air Force, performing in entertainment units known as Gang Shows. Now, for the first time, this story can be told. Bluebottle Goes to War is the tale of the formation of the remarkable talents of one of the greatest comedians of the twentieth century. Further, it illuminates a small corner of World War II history that seems uniquely British, detailing how groups of servicemen and women were sent around the world with hampers full of theatrical props and costumes to rally the troops in distant outposts. Describing how Sellers' storied career began in the RAF, this book reveals previously unknown film footage, photos, performances, broadcasts, and recordings

This book provides an introduction to the genetics, genomics, and breeding of the olive tree, a multi-functional long-lived crop plant that is relevant not only for culinary olive and oil production, but also for shaping the landscape and history of many rural areas for centuries. Today, the recognized health benefits of extra-virgin olive oil provide new impulses for introducing innovation in olive crop management and olive breeding for a deeper understanding of the biological processes underlying fruit quality, adaptation to crop environment and response to threatening epidemics due to biological agents such as Xylella fastidiosa. The individual chapters discuss genetic resources; classic and modern breeding methods for providing new olive cultivars; the genotype x environment interactions determining the response to biotic and abiotic stresses; fruit metabolism related to oil production and the synthesis of health beneficial molecules; the mapping of genes and quantitative trait locus; and genomic, transcriptomic and proteomic strategies pertinent to the development of a molecular platform and template amenable to precise and rapid genetic modifications using recently developed genome editing tools.

A quiet revolution is taking place in academic circles as scholars sift through myriads of new archeological discoveries and recently translated portions of the Dead Sea Scrolls to give us a picture of a very Jewish Jesus whose first followers were all Jewish and whose Gospels and letters testify, not to the replacement of the Jewish people and their aspirations, but the beginning of their realization. Indeed, a 2008 article in Time magazine listed "Re-Judaizing Jesus" as one of "Ten Ideas That Changed the World." This book serves as a sort of "CliffsNotes" summary of this more holistic, biblically consistent telling of the "Big Story" of God's purposes for "Israel and the Nations" contained in the mystery of Jesus and the Olive Tree. Armed with this knowledge, you will have a deeper grasp of the hope of the Christian faith, while avoiding the errors of historic anti-Jewish readings of Scripture as well as the prophetic speculations of other popular readings.

" What if one day your life changes and you are forced to close the door on all your hopes and wishes. Your whole life is left behind you, and you find that all that you ever desired came and went in the blink of an eye, and you missed it. That day found me earlier than most, I suppose it comes to everyone in the end. We all outlive our dreams. I was only in my early twenties when I found out there would be no castles in the skies or rainbows in the puddles. I guess you could say there is always hope, but what reason is there to hope when all you ever cared for has been stolen. If my yesterday is lost, and my tomorrow never comes, then perhaps the sorrow of my today will last a lifetime..."
